The quarterback-go-round was in high gear this offseason, with Tom Brady heading from New England to Tampa Bay, Philip Rivers going from the Chargers to Indianapolis, and Cam Newton heading from Carolina up to New England to replace Brady.

The top two picks in the 2015 draft packed their bags and moved, with Tampa Bay’s Jameis Winston heading to NFC South rival New Orleans, and Marcus Mariota going from Tennessee to the newly minted Las Vegas Raiders.

Nick Foles, once Super Bowl MVP for Philadelphia, was traded from Jacksonville to Chicago, and former Baltimore fixture Joe Flacco signed a free-agent deal with the New York Jets.


Teddy Bridgewater, who went from the Saints to the Panthers, finally will get a chance to establish himself as a starter (which was happening in Minnesota before his gruesome knee injury.)

SoFi Stadium, the NFL’s crown jewel, was the the culmination of Rams owner Stan Kroenke’s vision and the NFL’s desire to return to the L.A. market.
